Angry Total Newbie help w/Limewire


Ok, so as my name says, I hate windows. I am now using Red Hat 9.0.
I have (I think) installed the Java VM, but I get:

Warning: -Xmx100331648 not understood. Ignoring.
Warning: -Xms16777216 not understood. Ignoring.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Unexpected exception while defining class ZeroGq: java.lang.ClassNo
tFoundException: javax.swing.JDialog

when I try to install Limewire. Thanks for the help.

P.S. Be explicit, I'm a little slow.

You have a run-time error there. You sure you installed the java vm correctly? i.e. u updated the path variable and stuff?

try this

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_03/bin

(where------------- /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_03/bin is the name of the directory where my java file is located ) and then try to run ./LimeWireLinux again. see what happens

Tried again (./j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm) said yes, then A (all).
Then i type "rpm -ivh j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm" and it says already installed. I then "rm j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm" and go and "./j2re-1_4_1_03-fcs-linux-i586.rpm".

Still no dice. Should I download it again? I thought I was the shizznit when I got active-x to install, now I realize how little I know!

no, just give up for now and try a different application. if you want a fast decent and NATIVE gnutella client, try gtk-gnutella.sf.net it will install fine first time i promise. Limewire is one of the apps most newbies want to use, but it can be so so hard to get java working. of course once someone knows how to set up java, they no longer want limewire as they've found that much better native clients exist.

you might also want to try gift.sf.net which allows you to connect to gnutella, onenFT and fattrack (kazaa) all at the same time.

Not to throw you off topic, but I personally think gtk-gnutella would be much easier for you. For one, it doesn't use java. And second, it also comes in a very convinient RPM for your RH box that makes installation a snap. It also uses the same "backbone" as limewire, so you are really on the same network - only using some (in my opinion) easier software.

On a personal note, I have finally given in to acid_kewpie's relentlessness and am using gtk-gnutella instead of LimeWire. It really is a lot better the LimeWire I have to admit.

Ok, downloaded gnutella and it installed (clicked on the box, package screen, etc...) Where does it go?

If you still want to get java working, your problem is that Limewire is using the /usr/bin/java rather than the newly installed java which is found in /path/to/your/installed/jre/bin/. You can

mv /usr/bin/java to /usr/bin/rh_java
then
ln -s /path/to/your/installed/jre/bin/java /usr/bin/java

then it will work.

good luck.
